  • Publication number: 20230305574
    Abstract: It is recognized herein that robots or autonomous systems can lose time when computing grasp scores for empty bins. Further, when grasps are attempted on empty bins, for instance due to the related grasp score computations, the robot can lose additional time through being used unnecessarily to attempt the grasp. Such usage can wear on the robot, or damage the robot, in some cases. An autonomous system can classify or determine whether a bin contains an object or is empty, for example, such that a grasp computation is not performed when the bin is empty. In some examples, a system classifies a given bin at runtime before each grasp computation is performed. Thus, systems described herein can avoid performing unnecessary grasp computations, thereby conserving processing time and overheard, among addressing other technical problems.

  • Publication number: 20230228688
    Abstract: Robots might interact with planar objects (e.g., garments) for process automation, quality control, to perform sewing operations, or the like. It is recognized herein that robots interacting with such planar objects can pose particular problems, for instance problems related to detecting the planar object and estimating the pose of the detected planar object. A system can be configured to detect or segment planar objects, such as garments. The system can include a three-dimensional (3D) sensor positioned to detect a planar object along a transverse direction. The system can further include a first surface that supports the planar object. The first surface can be positioned such that the planar object is disposed between the first surface and the 3D sensor along the transverse direction. In various examples, the 3D sensor is configured to detect the planar object without detecting the first surface.
